      Great news. Republicans voter suppression tactics need to be challenged one by one. They are anti-democratic.

    Love this photo of our forever First Lady, Michelle Obama! Congratulations, Luci119!

    Paul Ryan (zombie-eyed granny-starver) came to Portland, not Rep. Greg Walden’s district, with our only GOP Congress critter in tow to shake the money tree. About 200 of us from many progressive organizations mounted a loud protest across the street from the entrance to the swanky country club.

    Every day, the homegrown demagogue and his despicable administration are taking actions that attack someone or something group of people. Per Maddow, the WSJ is reporting that the WH is going to send instructions to the Pentagon to implement the ban on transgender service men and women

      Wow. So they’re actually going through with a horribly discriminatory and completely unnecessary transgender ban during a time when they’re ramping up the war in Afghanistan. Doesn’t make a lick of sense.

      Frankly, I don’t have much sympathy for people who gained so much in 8 years – lgbt, obamacare beneficiaries, vets and so many other groups – and then did not turn up, or worse, turned up to vote against their own interests in 2016.

      Auntie Maxine, is NOT the one to be here for anyone’s mess. She gets the Black community’s honorific of “Auntie” because she represents all of the women in our lives and in our history, who have made a way out of no way, scrambled over obstacles often without help (A-A women have never been put on a pedestal to be adored; always the work mule), taking her children and everyone else’s children with her.

    ‘Consumed’ with Russia scandal, Trump keeps clashing with Republicans
    08/24/17 08:00 AM—UPDATED 08/24/17 09:45 AM
    By Steve Benen

    A Republican senator this week told a New York Times reporter that Donald Trump is “consumed” with the Russia scandal. And given the latest revelations, there’s every reason to believe the president’s preoccupation has affected his judgment.

    Following up on yesterday’s coverage, we now know Trump has clashed with Attorney General Jeff Sessions because the president expected the nation’s chief law-enforcement official to shield the White House from the investigation into the Russia scandal. Trump has clashed with former FBI Director James Comey – whom Trump ultimately fired – because the president wanted Comey to give him a hand with the same probe. He clashed with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell because the president expected the senator to “protect him” from committee investigations.

        … [W]hile Trump likely thought the photo manipulation was accurate because he was taking center stage over his predecessor, social media users quickly pointed out that the meme’s scenario meant Obama was the sun.

        “This is actually correct,” read a comment by Ed Krassenstein, who was behind one of the tweet’s top replies. “The Darkness of Trump has overtaken the brightness of Obama. The Sun is what gives us life and energy!”

        Others noted that, even if Trump was correct in saying he was overtaking Obama as an attention-getter, the total solar eclipse he referenced lasted for only about three minutes. … More here: http://www.newsweek.com/trump-eclipse-meme-tweet-obama-654579

      He still does not get it; an eclipse lasts for only a few minutes, once in a century or more. The sun comes out soon after shedding its light and life on the earth. Our nation’s sun and the light of all that PBO did for us and the world, is blocked by a lesser force for a short time and then it comes forth to last for a long time. 45 needs to crack a book.

    THE FALL OF EAGLES This was the title of a superb PBS series in the 1970s. It detailed and dramatized the fall of the three most powerful houses in Europe in the 19th Century: The Hapsburgs, Prussia and Russia. I immediately thought of this when I saw the redo of the Oval Office with the two tacky, garish gold eagles. To me this was highly symbolic. The symbol for those three houses was a double eagle….as was the symbol of the Roman Empire.

    I find this choice ominous, because to me it looks like trump is descending into Neronian (or has descended into) megalomania. I firmly believe this. He has gone beyond narcissism to full blown megalomania as witness his recent “rally” and tirades. Anyone who has studied history will be aware of this. Of course trump has not studied history, and has no understanding or care at all for anything beyond himself, just like Nero.

    Then, of course in the 20th century, Hitler used this same symbol. trump terrifies me, and if Republican Senators don’t wake up and act, they will not long be Senators. The redo of the Oval Office is being laughed at as tacky, and it is, but there is far more to it than just tacky…..it is a psychological statement that should awaken people……but we’ve said that about so much since January.

    People’s magic show:
    Empty Trumputin pulls out a piece of paper from his pocket and presto! The words “On Many Sides” has disappeared never to return.
    Announces change without changing anything. A pulverized America hypnotized by reality TV and ads is a perfect target for his contempt
    + foil for Putin’s plans to trash us. Try looking at photos or documents while someone is speaking – you can’t compute both. Trump’s
    nonsensical hand gestures are distractions for his empty speeches. Notice that reporters respond to him later after analysis. That sleight
    of hand makes it hard to put him on the spot. A performer with no content, he must rely on other people’s scripts, magic show optics,
    and meaningless gestural structures to distract while holding your attention.

      Russia’s Ideology. There Is No Truth:
      “IMAGINE if you grew up lying. Not a little bit, for convenience, but during every public moment of your life: at school, at work, at social events. You had to lie to survive, because the punishment for telling the truth was the loss of your academic or professional career, or even prison. For Russians who came of age before 1991, this is the only way they know….When members of this generation came to power they created a society that was a feast of simulations, with fake elections, a fake free press, a fake free market and fake justice.”

        Putin has a perfect disciple in Trump: How many times has he blown off an explanation of something by saying “No one really knows…”?

        It’s dangerous because he dismisses actual FACTS and TRUTH, such as his popular-vote loss.

        That makes ‘fake news’ the easy excuse to write off anything that makes Trump look bad.

    • August 24, 2017 at 1:10 pm

      So predictable when Trump made 3 speeches to choose from that selective memory was on its way. Even 47%-er Romney said
      “one side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes….morally different Universes”.
      So anyway back on January 10th Trump called the IC : Nazis.

      Most of them were barely out of their teens. It is just too much pain sometimes. The heart break increases because there is no real CIC to honor their service and sacrifice or to comfort their families by extending the nation’s grief and comfort.
